Development of Offshore Wind in the US: Fixed vs. Floating
Seward & Kissel has joined forces with Lautec US again to analyze the differences that are anticipated in West Coast wind developments as a result of greater water depths, as compared to the current ongoing projects being developed on the East Coast. One way to overcome the challenge on the West Coast is to utilize a new technology by way of floating mobile turbines, which have implications both from engineering and legal perspectives.
